Spotted! The Michelle Obama Clothes Line

Sure, she knows a thing or two about high-end designers (Jason Wu, anyone?), but that doesn’t mean First Lady Michelle Obama doesn’t wear less pricey ones. Her love of The Gap and J.Crew is well-documented and she recently wore both at the cover shoot for a new magazine, Children’s Health. The makeup artist on set, Susan Heydt, revealed that MObama wore a blue Gap cardigan over a J.Crew skirt. But with as much love as she shows them, when are these designers going to return the favor with a Michelle Obama-inspired collection? Keep reading »

Timberbrit: The Opera About Britney Spears

Britney Spears has turned her life around for the better in the last year. But that doesn’t mean people have forgotten the train wreck she once was. And some even expect her to go off the deep end again. Composer Jacob Cooper has created “Timberbrit,” (get it Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears?) a contemporary opera that imagines the tragic end of Brit-Brit’s career. More, after the jump… Keep reading »

Get Your Rocks Off: John Hughes’ Hot Jams

The late (tear) writer/director John Hughes had great taste in women and music. The two go hand-in-hand, no? His soundtracks were jam-packed with tunes to rock out or get felt up to. Clearly, he was a genius! So, let’s celebrate his life with a dance party of our favorite hits off the soundtracks for “Weird Science,” “Uncle Buck,” “She’s Having A Baby,” “Some Kind Of Wonderful,” “Planes, Trains & Automobiles,” “The Great Outdoors,” “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off,” “Pretty In Pink” and “The Breakfast Club.” It’s the perfect set list to perfect your Molly Ringwald. (Check out the video above, which mashes up the iconic dance scenes in Hughes’ movies with Phoenix’s “Lisztomania”). Listen up, after the jump…

Trailer Park: “Paper Heart,” “Julie And Julia,” “G.I. Joe: The Rise Of The Cobra”

TGIF, ladies! It’s been a long week and you deserve to treat yourself. This weekend, the perfect treats are the openings of “Paper Heart” and “Julie and Julia”! I’m not sure how Julia Child felt about popcorn, but I know she’s down with butter, so go for it. Oh, yeah, and “G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra” is opening, too, but the only draw for that one is the rise of evil Joseph Gordon-Levitt. Gotta love good boys gone bad! Keep reading »

Jennifer Aniston Won A Parenting Award?!

They must be handing out parenting awards these days because Jennifer Aniston—who, uh, doesn’t have children—has won one. She didn’t technically do any parenting for the award, but the actress narrated an accompanying CD to kids’ book Loukoumi’s Good Deeds. Along with her father, “Days of Our Lives” actor John Aniston, Jennifer Aniston recorded the story of Loukoumi, a fluffy lamb who does kind things for other people. And Loukoumi’s benevolence keeps giving because the profits from the book go to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. In total, all of these little acts of kindness have done parenting proud and so Aniston has won herself a pretty prize, the outstanding award at the iParenting Media Awards 2009. I hope they gave her a sticker that said “Outstanding!” on it, like the ones I used to get at the dentist’s office. [Sky Showbiz]

Mystery Solved: Joaquin Phoenix Is Really A Superhero

I must admit that I was a little bit devastated when former hottie, Joaquin Phoenix, took a trip to the dark side about six months ago. In his suitcase, he packed a beard, dark sunglasses, a rapping career, and a lot of controversy. The question that has been nagging at me ever since: Is he on vacation or moving there for good? Despite theories (I have my own, which I will share with you shortly) that he may be making this particular trip due to mental illness or as a publicity stunt for a documentary with pal Casey Affleck, it looks like he may be extending his stay. How do we know? He forgot a few key items and made a special trip to pick them up at a clothing joint on Melrose called RED BALLS. Keep reading »

Breaking News: Four-Inch Heels Can Be Comfy

Kenneth Cole is stepping into the future (ha) with technologically advanced shoes that apparently make four-inch heels tolerable—hell, comfortable, even! [Anyone else having an Easy Spirit flashback here? -- Editor] Four years in the making, these new high heels won’t leave you limping home after you’ve worn them all day. You can commute in them (hooray, no more pantyhose/white tennis shoes combos!), and as this video proves, you can also run around the hills of Central Park in ‘em. (Vid disclaimer: Unless you don’t mind multiple super-close camera shots of a blister-y foot, skip it, trust us!) Word is they’re made with foot-molding foam, have loads of arch support and offer legit shock absorption. My one and only plea to Kenneth, though—can you make some without the silver heel? I’m not blasting off to take a stroll around the moon in them anytime soon. [ABC News]
